Losing a loved one is a usually an emotional and stressful time. Having to navigate a probate procedure can make things so much harder. We can remove that burden and handle everything from start to finish including filing the appropriate court documents, dealing with creditors and beneficiaries, marshaling and liquidating assets. It is our goal to make the process as fast and easy as possible.
If you have been named as a successor trustee after a loved one has passed, it is not unusual to feel overwhelmed and confused about your duties as a trustee. We can guide you through the process and make sure that you provide the necessary notices, deal with property appropriately, protect the trust assets, and protect yourself from liability. Tara Miller is also able to serve as your Successor Trustee.
GUARDIANSHIPS AND CONSERVATORSHIPS
There are certain circumstances, due to mental incapacity, mental illness, or other situation where an adult is unable to make their own healthcare or financial decisions. An appointment of a Guardian and/or Conservator may be necessary. We will guide you through the process to make sure that your loved one is protected when they cannot protect themselves.
We can help you choose the right estate planning tools to avoid probate and leave more of your estate to your heirs and less to the government and/or courts and attorneys. We can guide you step by step through the process of making hard decisions and gaining peace of mind knowing that your affairs are in order in the unfortunate occurance of your incapacity or passing.

Our dad died four years ago. Our mom, unexpectedly died 3 weeks ago and we were left not knowing how to handle everything while also trying to grieve the loss of our mom. Tara took all that responsibility from us and it was such a relief to have her just tell us what she needed from us and we didn’t have to think about anything other than our own healing. Our family would definitely recommend using Tara Miller Law.
Tara is an absolute pleasure to work with. She not only is thorough in her explanations and making sure you understand everything, but she truly has a compassionate heart and willingness to help wherever she can that extends beyond the average attorney. This is why I would recommend no one else but her with anyone's estate.
This is a Law Practice you can trust! You will be treated like family and taken care of with integrity and kindness! The very best care possible!
